...you can probably tell that I am not bored of Union Jacks. Nancy made this beautiful block and has allowed me to post it here. She made a useful suggestion about the tutorial which is that, if you were not restricted to layer cake slices, the process would be speeded up by strip piecing the white-red-white stripes. She also mentioned that, in the real flag, the white strips on the diagonal are different widths. In fact, there are many British "Union Flag" (as it is properly called) enthusiasts who make a sport of spotting the flag being flown the wrong way up (we're a little odd over here). I think it looks prettier with even coloured white strips and, for me, pretty is more important than technically, flagically (a made up word) correct.
